PEREIRA, Felismina; MESQUITA, Isabel  e  GRACA, Amândio. The autonomy and responsibility of the players in Volleyball training setting: Comparative study according coaches’ gender. Rev. Port. Cien. Desp. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.1, pp.64-78. ISSN 1645-0523.

The purpose of this study is to examine the accountability and the autonomy conferred by coaches to the players, in volleyball training according to coaches' gender. Fifteen Portuguese coaches, seven female and eight male, participated in this study. The instruments applied, interviews and observation system, were created obeying the requisites of construct and content validation. For the analysis of the coaches' answers, content analysis method was applied, resorting to QSR NVivo version 7.0. For data analysis regarding coaches' pedagogical behaviour according to coaches' gender, Mann-Whittney tests were applied, with calculation of Effect Size. Results indicate a coach-centred teaching approach, supported by little responsibility given to players when executing the training tasks. Subsequently, this approach created situations that did not promote the adoption of instructional strategies aiming at the players' autonomy. Nonetheless, the women coaches' instructional approach was more accountable, inasmuch as their adopted accountability systems were more accurate and demanding, fact that brought on repercussions when conceding more autonomy to the players executing learning tasks, which was also supported by a more frequent use of specific questioning.
